I thoroughly enjoyed interning for Preston Russell. Being a medium size firm, I have been able to work in many different areas of law to get a feel for each and find out which area I would like to practice in for my future career. Preston Russell offers a very friendly environment which made fitting in effortless. Georgia Woodward, Summer 2017
